Givers and Takers (NaPoWriMo 4/30)

I’ll give you ears, proper timbre and tonality; my full weight against your arm until it’s limp and damp, pocked in a rash the shape of my locs

My Take

Sexuality presents as attractiveness like “You’re cute, I’m attracted to your physical-ness.” And ultimately if biology and evolution is to be trusted, that translates into “I’d be interested in having sex with you.” It’s one way to fertilize the earth I suppose.


Women I know wear Special so heavy their backs break under it; discard it in you and there you are feeling like you’re some kind of Robinhood to the rescue knowing full well you are water seeking its own level.
